For Thanksgiving proper bringing my last two bottles of 2013 Soliste Pinot Noir Nouveau Monde.

For the “at home” thanksgiving two days later, 2004 Dom Ruinart Rose w/eggs and potato chips followed by 1998 SQN E-Raised with cassoulet.

Funny. But the point is “what’s with all the French wine?”
It's really good. I am headed to the shop today to get a few bottles for the extended fam to drink. I'll look first to domestic wines but if I don't find anything in the range I want, I'll have no qualms about going with french or, more likely, Italian
There is an argument that Thanksgiving is an old world holiday. Jeremy Dupertuis Bangs writes that the pilgrims brought Leiden Thanksgiving from Holland. The residents of Leiden celebrated the end of the war for Dutch independence, when the starving city of Leiden triumphed after a long siege by Spanish forces.

But I’m not drinking Dutch wine...

We'll be supplementing our host's lineup with:

2008 Ployez-Jacquemart BdB Extra Brut
2016 JJ Prum Graacher Himmelreich Auslese (mag)
1995 Yquem

I enjoy using occasions like this to turn people on to Sauternes (or glorious Mosel Riesling, for that matter)

i usually open a bedrock or two, because I like them and the use old cali vineyards makes sense to me on this day; a domestic sparkler; and perhaps a SQN just because. and for my aunt, some kind of cheap butterbomb chard.

Just bought a bunch of wine I will not drink for the family T'Day thing, recommended by the folks at Arrowine. A Ken Wright Pinot, a prosecco for the MIL, who LOVES her prosecco, and a value pouilly fuisse for the chard drinkers. 3.5 hours each way in traffic, so yeah, probably not going to taste the stuff. If the fam is happy I am happy

2009 Roederer Brut
2014 Dowsett Gewurtz (Columbia Gorge)
2014 Aubert Lauren
2013 Navarro Deep End Pinot (Mag)
Graham's 20-year Tawny

I think there will only be five adults this year, so we should make it through the football games.

- 2016 Walter Hansel Cahill Lane Chardonnay (with the apps)
- 1998 Ravenswood Estate Merlot (main)

I’m a new Berserker and would like to start with some fun. What will be opened for your Thanksgiving feast?
I will be prepping a turkey for the family and will open the latest Nuits de Young from Kelley and Young, and maybe a Hartford Zinfandel if I feel the crowd is worthy....
You?

After some back and forth with Karen Troisi of Jean Edwards Cellars (initiated by me), I will add a bottle of their Sauvignon Blanc to the appetizer course because I am guessing that the high acid level in the wine will go well with, and cut through, the oil in the baked brie en boule that we are serving as an appetizer. I may also swap out the David Bruce pinot for a 2005 Aubert, Dumol or Loring pinot since people are raving about the 2005 Cali pinots on FacelessBook.
You have an appetizer course?

I thought most people just sat down to one big meal, in the mid-afternoon?

We've got a few Marines coming from Camp Pendleton so we'll need snacks out for them, as the last time we had some all they did is eat and nap [wow.gif]

Growing up, my family would have a traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey, stuffing, etc., etc., all laid out on the table family style, but now that I often host Thanksgiving and I LOVE cooking and love tasting menus, I try to do more of a small fixed menu that I'll generally bring out course by course. It's just how I prefer to eat, and I figure this is a dinner that's worth the effort. This year I'm doing 3 dinner courses (including an app course) followed by about 2 - 3 dessert courses.

I fear I"m stuck with 'traditional Thanksgiving' which means all the standard items (boring, have to work hard to spruce up turkey, stuffing, and potatoes) and served all at once on the 'good china'. I like the course-by-course idea

I've got a mag of 2007 Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules Domaine des Héritiers that might be smart to open?
I bet that's drinking incredibly now - did you buy that from the $47.50 sale years ago?

I last opened one in 2012 and it was young but fleshed out with air.

Based on a positive note on this site about the previous vintage, I picked up a 2018 Hofgut Falkenstein Krettnacher Euchariusberg kabinett. Looking forward to it.

I paid $70 so obviously I got ripped off!!! I’d buy ANY Jadot mag for $47.50!

Big crowd this year, so lots of wines. All of them are US but for some desert wines and the Sauternes being poured with the seared foie gras. (We are doing trad T-giving too, but with some extras. Starters, soups and so on, not unusual in my experience in any case.)

2015 Rhys Bearwallow Blanc de Blanc
2010 Peay Estate Chardonnay
2013 Rhys Horsehoe Chardonnay
1986 Chateau de Fargues Lur-Saluces Sauternes
2010 Anthill Farm Campbell Ranch Pinot Noir
2012 Patricia Greene Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir
2009 Saxum Broken Stones
1989 Hermann Weber Ludwigshoher Honigberg Silvaner Eiswein
1998 Peller Vidal Eiswein

Eggs and potato chips sounds cool, especially with champagne. Any trucs/tricks? Do you just break the chips up and mix them into some scrambled eggs, or something more unusual?

needs more gamay folks.

not sure how we're starting but im bringing a magnum of clos de la roilette 2014 tardive.
Given free reign i'd probably drink ONLY gamay on Turkey day but alas, we're hosting a mixed crowd so allowances have to be made [wink.gif]

Haven't made our picks yet (too much new-house prep and food stuff to do before the in-laws arrive), but I'm sure there's going to be a magnum of bubbles and some Tavel in the offing while we fill our faces with canapes before the main event. Gotta crack some bigger WA cab and some Zin for the in-laws, some off-dry riesling and hard A for my sisters-in-law and will probably stash a burgundy, cru bojo or OPN off to the side for Lauren and I to sneak when the timing allows. I got some Turley Cinsaults last time I was in Paso that I've been curious about so I'm pretty sure one will make an appearance once i get a few in me and am feeling exploratory. Got plenty of mezcal to share with our DF transplant friends who are joining us as well. Might update the post once we firm up our picks.

Starting at 4, John,
You're definitely welcome. I, too, am a big fan of Peay--like many, especially of their Scallop Shelf pinot. I have a vertical (or most of one) stretching from 2010-17. Maybe we'll have to find a place to meet up at some point (Chicago?) to do some tasting?

If you ever get a chance to make it out to their vineyards don't miss the opportunity. Been there twice and while it's a full day endeavor to get out there it's the nicest vineyard I've been to in the U.S. And Nick is a great down to earth host. Best to spend the night in Gualala or Sea Ranch if you do go.

All Sebastopol for me this year.

Nice neighborhood wine store.

We are not cooking this year so I will bring a case for the extended family (with producers tbd) along the following range

Rose
Pinot
Nebbiolo
Margaux (we wouldn't be celebrating without the French assist)
CdP
Syrah

After some family events, suddenly hosting Thanksgiving, so no time to stop at storage.

Thinking

2000 Les Carmes Haut Brion
2006 L. Boillot Pommard Fremiers
2014 Jamet
2017 Morgen Long Chardonnay
1990 Rieussec
Whatever NV Champagne I dig up

Maybe swap in a 2005 Lagrange for science

Not sure yet. Sipping on a Carlisle Syrah in deep contemplation...

At the dinner table:
Prive Pinot Noir Le Sud 2008
Honig Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Going to have a few different bottles open before guests arrive but that will be a "game time decision"

Picked up from the storage unit this afternoon.

Please share any recommendations for decanting the reds.

2010 Stony Hill Chardonnay (Btw, popped one last weekend, it's singing!!)
2012 Limerick Lane Zinfandel Russian River
2007 Guigal Cote Rotie
2006 Il Poggione Brunello Riserva
2013 Bevan Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills
The 2013 Bevan Pinot is drinking amazingly upon PnP, but I am sure a decant won't hurt it. I popped one for my birthday last year.

For Thanksgiving proper bringing my last two bottles of 2013 Soliste Pinot Noir Nouveau Monde.

For the “at home” thanksgiving two days later, 2004 Dom Ruinart Rose w/eggs and potato chips followed by 1998 SQN E-Raised with cassoulet.
Eggs and potato chips sounds cool, especially with champagne. Any trucs/tricks? Do you just break the chips up and mix them into some scrambled eggs, or something more unusual?
Ha! Sorry, caviar, not scrambled eggs, though man oh man, I do love some beautifully cooked scrambled eggs. FWIW Costco now has Osetra caviar in an 8.8 Oz tin for $80 off, which works out to $34.09/Oz.

The Puligny was really just for me. For half the money, I’m just as happy with goodfellow, Crowley, or Cameron for 60% of the cost.

Was just down in the cellar plotting my strategy - I'm going to start with side-by-sides of the 2016 & 2017 Goodfellow Richard's Cuvée and Durant Chards.
Then I've got a vertical of the Berserkers Cuvée - '13 & '14 courtesy of Patricia Green, then the '17 from Marcus.
Should be fun.
Tasting notes!
